Day tripping: Indianapolis

Day tripping: Indianapolis

Yesterday Cory and I road tripped about two-hours to Indianapolis and part of the day exploring. We mapped out some sights we’d like to see and by the end of the of trip, we visited most of those places. It was nice because we so rarely have the same days off and we weren’t rushing; which is always nice. We first started out at the Love sculpture at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. I would’ve liked to visited the Museum of Art, but alas, they’re closed on Mondays. :-\ We did have a nice time photographing the sculpture and walking around the grounds. Next, we headed to White Rive State Park where I wanted to walk the canal. We didn’t realize just how humid it was going to be and didn’t dress for it. We walked around for a while, had good conversations, and then decided we were getting hungry. This was a very good practice for our trip to Europe next month, because I realized my camera bag is too heavy, we both need to wear lighter clothes for extensive walking. As much as we both wanted to look cute yesterday, we both would’ve preferred to be comfortable by […]

Changes

During the middle of March I started receiving e-mails from NameCheap regarding my domain name renewal. I briefly thought about not renewing it because I haven’t updated since June. Though I’m sure that’s not the longest I’ve gone without posting to one of my sites. I gave thought to buying a new domain, one that didn’t allude that I only blog about Apple or cosmetic (M.A.C) products. However, moving databases makes me uneasy and it seemed like a lot of work. So I opted to renew this domain and decided I should start blogging again. There have been a lot of changes going on in my life since June; actually there have been a couple big changes in the last four months. I’ve quit my job and I’m in a relationship(!) Quitting my job I’ve been at the same job since 2006 with the exception of the summer I was in Seattle. After coming back from Seattle I moved to a different store that was about 70-75 minutes away (one-way). In January after the Spring semester started I began to feel worn down and felt like there was no time to get school work done. I was spending on average […]

500 Days of Summer

Tonight my brother took me out for my birthday, since I won’t be with him on Friday when it’s my birthday. We had dinner with two of his friends followed by the film “500 Days of Summer“. I’ve been wanting to see this film since I saw the trailer earlier this year, and I should know better than to go into a film with high expectations because I’m always let down. Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t a terrible movie but it was a little too real for me in a way that brought back old memories of a previous relationship. I found myself comparing myself to Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and the desperation of trying to win someone back, being blinded by the good memories of a person when deep down there were more bad memories than good, etc. I found myself wanting to slap Summer (Zooey Deschanel) and tell her to snap out of it and get her shit together. If only it was that simple in relationships. I guess it’s good that it engaged thoughts and memories but it’s leaving me a little melancholy. I’m still unsure how I feel about the film but you should see it […]
